Sussex Police’s recruitment programmes for a direct-entry superintendent and three fast-track constable to inspector roles close later this month and the force is arranging two events – one face-to-face and one online – for people who are interested in applying.
On Thursday (May 8th), Temporary Chief Constable Giles York welcomes potential recruits to Brighton Police Station in John Street. He will discuss the fast-track inspector roles between 5.00 pm and 6.00 pm and the direct-entry scheme between 6.30 pm and 7.30pm.
Anyone interested in taking part in either session can pre-register by e-mailing email@example.com.
Spaces are limited, so please register in advance to guarantee your place.
On Friday (May 9th), there’s a live web chat with the opportunity to put questions to Superintendent Laurence Taylor and Inspector James Scott. Join the web chat at www.sussex.police.uk/whats-happening/recruitment-web-chat/ for the hour-long session from 6.00 pm.
Temporary Chief Constable Giles York said: “We’re looking to attract exceptional and proven leaders to come into policing at superintendent rank, bringing with them fresh perspectives and new insights. Candidates will be trained over an 18 month period and given coaching and mentoring to equip them with the new skills necessary for their exciting new role.
“The fast-track scheme is an accelerated three-year promotion and development programme which will equip the most talented graduates with the skills, knowledge and experience to join the force and advance to the rank of inspector within three years.
“These new programmes, which are backed by the College of Policing, welcome a wider pool of talent to enter the police service, as well as rapidly promoting the very best talent from within the service. They will attract individuals with new perspectives and diverse backgrounds to support development in a police force moving forward and meeting new challenges.”
